Four OSSM students have earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs. These programs grant academic honors to underrepresented minorities who can include them on college and scholarship applications. Through the College Board’s Student Search Service, colleges and scholarship programs identify students who were awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural/Small Town Recognition. 

 The OSSM students who earned these accolades are Julie M., National Indigenous Award; Maddox M., National Indigenous Award; Tessa H., National Hispanic Recognition Award; and Xavier N., National Hispanic Recognition Award. 

“We are pleased that our students have earned this recognition. We are immensely proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms and on College Board assessments,” said Edna McDuffie Manning, Ed.D., interim president of OSSM. “These programs help students from underrepresented backgrounds stand out to colleges during the admissions process.”
